Wondered how anyone can guarantee blue layers from a June hath?

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

Well, the eggs will be any color from olive green to turquoise blue. I have one EE hen left after having several over the years. The current one lays blue eggs identical in color to my Cream Legbar's blue eggs.

 

So, no, there is no guarantee I'll get true blue-egg layers by ordering EEs, or Ameraucanas, as the hatcheries all insist on calling them, even though we all know they aren't true Ameraucanas.

 

I love EEs because of the greenish and bluish eggs, and they're so sweet and affectionate. At least all of mine have been.

Ah, OK...yep, no guarantees for blue with EE.

 

I have a blue laying EE..... bought 2 chicks, 1 lays blue, the other lays green.

Got some nice OE out of the blue eggs with a Wellie cock.

 

Wanted to hatch some CL this year, but it's not panning out with a local 'breeder'.....

......they've been a bit less than fully forthcoming about egg color, so I passed.

 

Am probably going to grab some more ArauKinda chicks from the mill.
